    How the aerolatte Porcellana Stove Top Works

  • Fill the base with water to just below the steam valve
  • Fill the funnel shaped coffee filter halfway with ground coffee. Do not compress the coffee.
  • Screw the top section firmly to the base.
  • Place the porcelain pot under the metal spout.
  • Turn on stove and heat gently until coffee fills the pot.

How Does it Compare?

Unlike other stove top espresso makers, the porcelain coffee pot detaches from the base for easy pouring.

Tips and Tricks

Make sure to properly and thread the two base pieces together. The porcelain pot rests on top of them.

Karenn1 asked: I watched a YouTube video in which they poured out the finished beverage. It didn't have any crema on top. It looked like coffee. Is that expected/the norm when using a stove top espresso maker?
Thanks.

Teri KStaff: Yes, unfortunately stove top units like this aerolatte Porcellana rely on steam pressure for espresso making rather than pump pressure, and so while you end up with a nice strong brew, the end cup will lack crema. Sadly you will not find true crema from any stove top espresso maker. Nov 25, 2013

Karenn1: Thank you, Teri. I have 3 more questions:
1)
The video that I first watched was by ThinkGeek, demonstrating the Caffee Procellana Stovetop maker -- and that beverage looked like coffee from a percolator.
The Great SCG Stovetop Expresso video shows a beverage much thicker, and still without crema.
Is the difference in the maker? or in the amount of coffee used in the maker?
2)
The Bodum Chambord (double-walled) Stovetop espresso maker is referred to as a French Press. I understand French Press results in a gritter beverage. So is it a French Press? I don't quite understand the difference. Help!
3)
Does the Bialetti Brikka really produce crema? But not under the amount of pressure the bar machines use. So the difference is...?
Ultimately, I need to come into the store and taste/smell the differences. However, knowing this information will help me in my decision making process.
Many thanks! Nov 25, 2013
Teri KStaff: Yes, you will end up with a nice result from a stovetop if using the correct grind and dosage, and so if the coffee in another video looked weak, then yes, these factors may be off. I am not sure which Chambord you are looking at that mentions it is both a stove top and a french press, but "Chambord" is just a term Bodum uses to describe the fit and finish of a series of different items. Therefore you may have seen a Chambord Stove Top as well as another product that is a Chambord French Press, but no item is both. A french press uses coarse ground coffee and hot water, while a stove top uses finely ground coffee and a direct heat source. Finally, I cannot speak to the Bialetti Brikka, as we don't offer it and so I am not familiar with it. Hope this info helps clarify! Nov 29, 2013
Karenn1: Thank you, Teri. Your answers helped decrease my confusion.
I am disappointed that you don't carry the Brikka. I really want to taste test it! Nov 29, 2013
Teri KStaff: Sorry we don't offer that Brikka, but I hope you find what you are looking for! Let me know if you have any other questions! Dec 2, 2013
